A gentleman's bike

Post about everything from carrying a handkerchief to manly skills (sharpening a pocket knife, etc.) to product reviews of items that may have slipped under our radar (e.g. - Grandpa's Pine Tar soap). No threads on anything "new" unless it harkens to old-fashioned sensibilities and ideals.

Nice bike by the way.
I literally took these pics this week since I just got the bike. There are a number of Kogswell P/R bikes on Flickr and lots of vintage English style and porteur bikes (both of which this is modeled on).

Would love to see the pics if you find them again.

And thanks. I'm loving the bike.

I picked up my bike on July 5th. They did not have a Raleigh in my size (apparently I require a tiny little girl sized frame) so I got a Redline r750 instead. It had better components. I will try to get pics sometime. I have put about 200 miles on it thus far. It's not a vintage cruiser bike but it is cool.

Please note, Old-fashioned Gentlemen do not wear the following:

I believe I may now have a gentleman's bike! A 1974 Raleigh International. This thing comes with a Brooks saddle and a full Campagnolo Record set.

What do you think? Gentleman's ride?

Just put a new Pass&Stow rack on my bike. I put an old crate on to complete my "grocery getter".

That really is a killer bike MOJO. I for one appreciate it. If you don't want it you can send it to me. :D

The coca cola box is a tasteful addition to it. Well done.

Thanks Thunk. She's a joy to ride. The box is handy for spins over to Lucky's Market near our house.
